Camden-based New Jersey American Water said Thursday it will replace approximately 2,780 feet of aging water main in Fair Haven beginning next week. The project also includes replacing four fire hydrants and 48 utility-owned service lines.
This $765,000 investment is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.
The company will upgrade the aging water lines, installed in the 1920s, with new, larger ductile iron main along Fair Haven Road from Third Street and Laurel Drive to the dead end.
New Jersey American Water contracted J. F. Kiely Construction Co. to begin work on or about Sept. 28 and expects to finish by the end of November.
New Jersey American water recently announced a similar projects in Union County and Piscataway.
